Buddy you always take things in the other way ! Take a Chill Pill & Read the time of the Post! I said we could have scored more in 30-40th over. When i had written the Post Yuvi had also gone .But thanks to Raina we crossed 300.Before the match started there was news that even 300 was gettable ! About Lawson s dream of beating India by 150 runs , DREAM ON BUDDY !

"Yes indeed!".........thats Arun Lal's pet dialogue as well! Rameez Raja is still okay

And has anyone noticed Sohail while on commentary? He goes like "12 overs, they are gone"

Hope Dhoni will play Gony in next match vs Bangaladesh on 12th. He needs to be given an opportunity and hope this is the best match he makes a debut and impress the selectors.

Good point buddy, even i want Gony to be a part of the side. Question is whom will Dhoni drop then? Praveen had done a good job yday by picking 4.
Ishant i doubt. The only option would be playing one batsman less , maybe Rohit sharma can be rested.

Bangladesh win toss, elect to bat vs India
Live: Cricinfo - 3rd Match: Bangladesh v India at Dhaka (SBNS), Jun 12, 2008

Bangladesh need a 218 run win today to make it to the finals. So their 1st task is to get 350 on board. Then get India out for 125 odd. Can they implement this plan?

India line up:
  1. V Sehwag,
  2. G Gambhir,
  3. Yuvraj Singh,
  4. RG Sharma,
  5. YK Pathan,
  6. MS Dhoni,
  7. SK Raina,
  8. IK Pathan,
  9. PP Chawla,
  10. P Kumar,
  11. RP Singh
Today, only RP Singh is mug with the bat.

PCB Chief does a Mallya Pakistan cricket chief warns team

"Last night's performance against India in which we lost by over 100 runs was embarrassing,

"It is not a question of losing a match but our overall performance and the lack of resolve and commitment bothered me.

"We were smiling and joking as if we were some junior team which was happy just to be given the privilege of playing against a top team. This has to stop."

Ashraf singled out wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal, describing his performance as "pathetic", particularly an incident when he dropped a catch but still claimed it.

I hope so. Then who will sit on the bench? Today it was Ishant's turn and in finals who??? Maybe Irfan/Yosuf Pathan.

Finally its 222 all out for Bangadesh. But Dhoni and co gave lot many runs in the middle overs. Can we overhaul this? We need to wait and watch.

Question: Why do you think Shahid Afridi - who he thinks is one of the greatest hitters of the ball ever in the history of the game - is not performing? Do you think he should be dropped from the team? Or should he change his game or quit trying to hit the ball for six in all directions?

Geoffrey Boycott: He can't change his game because he is a hitter of the ball. He is a wonderful hitter and I think he is one of the biggest hitters that the game has seen. He has a wonderful physique and is a strong lad. But he has no brain. He can't think. He can't stop swiping even if you stood on his shoulder and told him not to hit the ball before the bowler bowled.

I love him to bits and I think he is a smashing lad. He has the gift of natural hand-eye co-ordination to hit the ball, but I am sorry, God didn't give him a cricket brain to think his way through cricket situations. He doesn't have a cricket brain to play technique cricket, so he cannot change. I think he has a natural skill at bowling. But I am afraid, that you and I, and lots of his fans have to love him for what he is, not for what we'd like him to be.

I was done with consummate ease in the end. The Daredevils, Sehwag and Gambhir carried on from where they left against Pakistan. The result was never in doubt after another good start.

When is the final match? India should take the final with some caution as the Pakis would be looking to bounce back after a huge defeat in the last match.

Rohit Sharma suddenly looks out of sorts. He is taking ages to get used to the pace of the wicket. He had settled down yesterday only to hit a bad shot and throw his wicket away.
